I am making a cranberry chutney with honeycrisp apple and navel orange and I added too much dry orange and lemon. How do I cut the bitterness? It is plenty sweet with a bit of sugar and sweet apples. I usually add frozen orange concentrate but didn't have any. I am afraid to add it would only lead to more bitterness. Is cardamom considered bitter? I added this too.

    Hard to say without the recipe... but a low level fix is adding everything else except aforementioned citrus to re-balance it, and just end up with a larger quantity – Megha Nov 22 '17 at 4:37
